South and Occupy Charlotte

No, say it ainât so â was it really so that the Democratic National
Convention(DNC) had the chutzpa to convene, of all days, on
Labor Day, in a nonunion convention hall, in a right to work state?
Well, itâs true! So, thereâs all the more reason to join and build
bridges with the worker advocates that converged in Charlotte
last week. We bring you on the ground coverage with southern
worker coalitions organizing public and private sector workers
for labor rights in their Southern Workers Assembly; and other
activists from across the country who converged on Wall Street
South (the second largest concentration of finance capital in the
U.S., after N.Y.C.).
Undocumented Immigrantsâ Freedom Bus Ride!

Undocumented immigrants taking a page from the civil rights
movement rode on a bus for justice from Arizona to Charlotte, N.C.
to the Democratic National Convention. Across the states they
challenged the champions of prejudice by their voices, and with
actions against discrimination, harassment, and deportation. They
are ready to move the country forward and demanded that the
Democratic Party match their courage by stopping the arrests and
deportations and enacting comprehensive immigration reform.
